Cluster Manager

The Cluster Manager is responsible for node and cluster management. Every node within a Couchbase cluster includes the Cluster Manager component.

The Cluster Manager is responsible for the following within a cluster:

  • Cluster management

  • Node administration

  • Node monitoring

  • Statistics gathering and aggregation

  • Run-time logging

  • Multi-tenancy

  • Security for administrative and client access

  • Client proxy service to redirect requests

Access to the Cluster Manager is provided through the administration interface on a dedicated network port and through dedicated network ports for client access. Additional ports are configured for inter-node communication.
